Update to DD won't give up Pullups!

Thanks to everyone for their great advice!

Three weeks ago I took told my DD that I gave her pullups to babies because she didn't need them anymore. I kept emphasizing that she's a big girl now and she has her big girl underwear. She was a little upset for a couple days, she kept saying she needed a pullup, and when I would tell her they were gone she's give me the saddest face and say "Can you get them back?"

So, I told her we'd go see the babies that have her pullups, and the next day she was at her little daycare, I took her to the babies room, and said "Look how happy the babies are! They are so thankful to you for giving them your pullups!" After that, she never asked about her pullups again!

She had about 3 - 5 accidents in the first couple weeks, but she's been doing great! We're even night trained.

I am so happy you are on track.


Please give DD a high five for me.

That is a great update. What a great idea to give away the pullup to babies.
